The Willmar Design Center hired Gemini Associates to write a grant application to the National Register to nominate the Lakeland Hotel to the National Register of Historic Places. The nomination was completed, submitted to the State Historic Preservation Office and was determined to meet the documentation requirements for a National Register Registration Form and for the Secretary of the Interiors Standards for Registration.
Six Kandiyohi County Township records were microfilmed and a copy was given to each township and one put into the research library at the Kandiyohi County Historical Society for easier access to the public. The master copy is being stored at Southwest Minnesota State University History Center. KCHS had microfilmed 42 rolls of film. During this project, KCHS assisted Colfax Township in finding their lost records and recovering them from inadequate conditions.
The most enduring value of this project is the preservation of the townships public records.
